    I have a hen who i noticed made a bloody poop about 3 days ago and as of yesterday is moving very slowly and has a weird posture. What could this be? Do I just need to cull her?

    She could have worms which the others could get too. You might want to do a search on this sight to see what treatment might suit you.

    "Rocky 3" (the hen) died this afternoon. I have been reading around and I wonder if it was Cocci? She was about 6 months old and only showed signs of sickness for about two and a half days before she died. Any further ideas on what this could have been? All my other birds seem to be doing fine but I am afraid that whatever it was could spread.

    So sorry she didn't make it. I have not had personal experience with cocci, but that does sound like a possibility from what I know.
